Summary: Too many minor design flaws that affect functionality add up to a substandard product.
Pros: 1) The readout is large and clear. 2) Temperature can be viewed in Fahrenheit and Celsius.
Cons: 1) It is top-heavy. The readout part is pretty darn heavy so you have to hold it up. 2) Changing batteries is a PAIN. The plastic housing is so soft that it got completely chewed up when we tried to take it off using a coin in the groove provided. And there is no other way to change batteries, so expect successively increasing struggles each time as the back gets more and more mangled. 3) It is not even remotely instant-read and takes 15-20 seconds of standing around holding it to give you a proper readout.
